4.7.9.C: estimate measurements and solve application problems involving volume of prisms (rectangular and triangular) and cylinders.
5.7.11: The student understands that the way a set of data is displayed influences its interpretation.
5.7.11.A: select and use an appropriate representation for presenting and displaying relationships among collected data, including line plot, line graph, bar graph, [stem and leaf plot,] circle graph, and Venn diagrams, and justify the selection; and
5.7.11.B: make inferences and convincing arguments based on an analysis of given or collected data.
5.7.12: The student uses measures of central tendency and range to describe a set of data.
5.7.12.A: describe a set of data using mean, median, mode, and range; and
5.7.12.B: choose among mean, median, mode, or range to describe a set of data and justify the choice for a particular situation.
